Lundahl & Seitl: Four Stages of Conversations
Four Stages of Conversations
Christer Lundahl and Martina Seitl create immersive, participatory environments, often involving intimate binaural recording, touch and prolonged darkness. Their last performance in the West Midlands was the critically acclaimed Sympony of a Missing Room at Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery, at Fierce Festival 2011. This new work involves a collaboration with Sue Fox, a renowned hypnotist, who worked with Ron Athey on Gifts of the Spirit in Fierce 2012.
This work takes conversation itself as a medium. The dialogues will be enriched by a series of experts from a range of disciplines invited to participate from academic departments across the Warwick University campus.
Fierce Thoughts: “Lundahl & Seitl are pioneering a new kind of artwork in which the viewer’s perception is both the medium of the work and its potential content, as well as the means to receive it.” This quote from a visitor to their work succinctly captures the ‘red thread’ that courses through Martina and Christer’s work.
